Confetti is Done and a New Project!

Confetti quilt is done!!

Has been for a few days now.  I should have taken it outside over the weekend for a photo shoot in the sunlight-- and forgot to. 

It will have to wait a few more days to have it's magnificent unveiling... it will be worth it.. I promise.  And I had to at least post one finished photo, right?  Wait till you see Confetti in the sunlight!!


Switching gears have you heard of a blog called Happy Quilting?  Well, Melissa from Happy Quilting has a fantastic creative space that has inspired me to join her for a happy quilt-a-long that is just starting.  How can you resist that?

Here is a sneaky at the cool pattern we will be making!!  (picture from Happy Quilting)


I think the best part is that there is so much room to still be you in the design, size, and shapes, and I like that kind of creative freedom!!  You can read about the start of the quilt-a-long and many size ideas here. I think this pattern is going to be the perfect compliment for the African prints that I have been wanting to pull together for sometime now!

This week we start cutting.  Last night, I pulled out most of the fabrics I am thinking of incorporating.  This will be my first quilt with a mix of cotton and many other types (most I don't even know the name of).


These fabrics came from a box that was in the trunk of my co-workers car for what she said was a year.  She didn't have the heart to throw out the fabric (bless her!) and when she saw some of my work she entrusted me with the whole box!!  What a gift!  In return, I wanted to make her a quilt... and well... that was already almost a year ago now.

It looks like someone started cutting the lion fabric and joining them.  I think I will have to work this in somehow.


Cute, no?


This one is my favorite by far.  The little birds and fish... the black and white contrast... the little beige/yellow dots in the background!!  It's going to be hard to cut, but fun to see in a final design!


The photo washed this one out.  It's a soft chocolate brown color.  The swirls take my heart for a ride!


I like this one too.  It introduces another shade of brown and that awesome royal blue!


I have over a hundred 5 inch squares to cut tonight and am looking forward to getting ready to sew!
